I attended the first ever Presidential Election Rally in Singapore 2 weeks ago. That was history in the making.
The one thing that touched me is the realization that this Presidential Candidate - Tan Jee Say is a good example of someone living The Singapore Dream. He comes from a poor and humble background - he is the youngest of 11 children of a washer woman (from China) who was trying to make ends meet. Through his hard work and effort, he earned the scholarship to study Philosophy Politics & Economics at Oxford University, and went on to have a stellar career path.
This is The Singapore Dream.
With hard work, effort and capability, you are given the opportunity to shine on the global stage, irregardless of your family background. That is inspirational!
